Fed Up! - Genetic Engineering, Industrial Agriculture and Sustainable Alternatives
Producer Angelo Sacerdote
About 70% of the food we eat contains genetically modified ingredients and is not labeled. The biotechnology industry is spending $50 million a year to convince us that this technology is our only hope for feeding the world and saving the environment. Family farmers are disappearing at an astonishing rate as people continue to go hungry both here and abroad. *
Using hilarious and disturbing archival footage and featuring interviews with farmers, scientists, government officials and activists, FED UP! presents an entertaining, informative and compelling overview of our food production system from the Green Revolution to the Biotech Revolution and what we can do about it. *

Excellent information presented in an approachable and enjoyable way. As we learn more about issues related to climate, sustainability, human health, population growth, world hunger, and others, it is clear that the agricultural methods that appeared to serve us well in the late 20th century are not doing so now, and will also not do so moving forward. A compelling case is made for a return to organic agriculture, with the added benefit now of science that was unavailable to previous generations.
